The young Albireo had portrayed the qualities of a true king. However, his anguish exceeded the imagination as he was required to ignore his personal desires and continue his battles without the slightest protest for the sake of his citizens' property. It was the inhuman perfection that caused the monks to gradually lose their trust in him. As people bowed to him out of fear rather than reverence, Albireo fettle ill portent of his downfall at the hands of a traitor.

Albireo (β Cyg, β Cygni, Beta Cyg, Beta Cygni) is the fifth brightest star, a double star, in the constellation Cygnus. Since Cygnus is the swan, and Albireo is located at the head of the swan, Albireo is sometimes called the "beak star". Medieval Arabic-speaking astronomers called Albireo minqār al-dajājah (English: the hen's beak). Its current name is a result of misunderstanding and mistranslation. It is thought that it originated in the Greek name ornis for the constellation of Cygnus, which became urnis in Arabic. When translated into Latin, this name was thought to refer to the plant Erysimum officinale, and so was translated into a Latin name for this plant, ireo. The phrase ab ireo was later treated as a misprint of an Arabic term and transcribed as al-bireo.
